It is the 21st century, can be called as modern period, still every person wants to have a baby boy and if a girl is born, they cut their wings and make them unable to fly. So inequality starts with the birth of Allah ki rehmat (girl).
Females make more than 50% of the population of pakistan. In this modern world they are still deprived of their basic rights. By not providing them the opportunities and facilities to participate in all sectors of life. We have failed to get the talent and skills of a major part of our population and it has resulted in huge economic losses. Gender inequality is not only an issue of pakistan but almost every part of the world is facing this issue. Not only females, in some cases males also face gender inequality all around the world but the main victim of this issue is female.
We hear many people who say that they believe in gender equality but when it comes to show, then they fail to turn their words into actions. About 50 percent of girls drop out of school and our literacy rate for women is amongst the lowest in the world.
Lets bring a change and give equal opportunities to females in all departments and government also have to reserve more seats for females, which will result in betterment of our economy and society as well.
